Xmas in July is made possible thanks to a partnership with The Angelus. Thanks to their involvement, the event has no cost to attend and is able to invite other nonprofits to join at no cost to their organizations. The many local businesses, that donated everything from monetary support to their own services, allow all attendees to enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment. The first 100 kids ages 14 and under can pick up a free kids gift and everyone can participate in the free Holiday Scavenger Hunt with a chance to win prizes donated by  on-site vendors.

Birthday Fundraiser Inc. was founded in 2021 by Rhiannon “Nikki” McFarling. In 2022 a fictious name was selected as Positive Difference Organization as a way to better align with the mission statement. The mission is to inspire today’s youth to make a positive difference in the world around them. This mission is accomplished by providing motivational speaking to youth organizations, giving out inspirational wristbands and producing free community events.  The charity focuses on in-kind donations over monetary. It is about using our skills, talents and abilities to create a more positive world.
